Wenger era ends at Arsenal amid 'Kroenke you're next' banner

Wenger era ends at Arsenal amid 'Kroenke you're next' banner

Silva was signed by Wenger in 2002 and spent six seasons under the former Nagoya Grampus and Monaco boss, winning the Premier League and FA Cup, while the Brazilian was a Champions League runner-up with Arsenal in 2005-06. "It's these contradictions I don't understand and would like to know better", Wenger added.

Frenchman Wenger, who is leaving the club after nearly 22 years in charge, was given a guard of honour by both sets of players before the kickoff and then walked to the visiting Arsenal supporters to acknowledge them. I just want to wish this group of players well and the staff who are coming in.

Wenger was given a guard of honour before kick-off at the John Smith's Stadium and the feelgood atmosphere peaked in the 22nd minute - marking his number of years in charge - when he was afforded a lengthy period of applause from the entire stadium.

The win, courtesy of a Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang goal, ensured Arsenal would end the season on a high with their first away point and win over 2018.

Writing in his column for the Daily Star, Merson said: "I still think Brendan Rodgers is the ideal candidate". Therefore, we've rounded up everything you might have missed from yesterday into one place.

The 66-year old manager further added that he encouraged Arsenal to organise a tour to India, but it never came to fruitition. "I would like to see it myself". "We need two or three additions and after that I believe the team will compete for the Premier League". "Whether that is managing or not.I am addicted and I don't think that can be cured", he said.

Chief government Ivan Gazidis claimed that Arsenal face the most important problem of their historical past in changing the Frenchman after final month's announcement that he can be stepping down on the finish of the season after practically 22 years on the helm.

One of Wenger's lasting legacies is Arsenal's move from Highbury to the 60,000-seater Emirates Stadium in 2006, after which Arsenal's spending power was restricted to ensure the new ground was paid for.
